NULL pointer check for address to exported function

Reported by: Knut Landmark Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: zoo-kernel Version:
Keywords: Cc:


In the following code fragment occurring twice in zoo_service_loader.c, GetProcAddress or dlsym will return NULL if a user has mistyped the service name (the WPS Identifier parameter):

#ifdef WIN32
	typedef int (CALLBACK* execute_t)(char***,char***,char***);
	execute_t execute=(execute_t)GetProcAddress(so,fname);
	typedef int (*execute_t)(char***,char***,char***);
	execute_t execute=(execute_t)dlsym(so,fname);

This will cause a crash when attempting to invoke the function at the address given by execute:


There should be a check to avoid this happening (with an error message).

Thanks a lot for your report.

This should be solved from r469, as you can see on line 453 of zoo_service_loader.c, we are now checking for the NULL value retruned by both functions (ref.).
